Sucker Creek Reserve Map

Sucker Creek was one of the first Treaty 8 reserves to be established. It was surveyed in 1901 and was located on Lesser Slave Lake, near the site of the original treaty signing.

Reserve lands were awarded at the rate of one square mile or 640 acres (259.2 hectares) per family of five "or in that proportion for larger or smaller families."
